TOPEKA Kansas
Republicans have much to
look forward to after an
overwhelming victory in
Tuesdays midterm elec-
tions, which included
the election of the states
first Republican gover-
nor in eight years.
Sam Brownback won
the gubernatorial elec-
tion with 63 percent of the
vote, 30 percentage points
more than Tom Holland, the
Democratic candidate.
He said this years election
was a clean sweep for a new
beginning. Republicans won all
major seats on Tuesdays ballot.
No more Obama way, now to
the Kansan way, Brownback said
in his victory speech while standing
next to his wife, three of his five chil-
dren and Jeff Coyler his running
mate and Coylers family.
Brownbacks win marks a con-
siderable victory for the states
Republicans Party, who already con-
trolled both chambers of the Kansas
Legislature. Theyll now have the
chance to implement Brownbacks
Road Map for Kansas, his com-
prehensive agenda, which focuses
on growing the Kansas economy,
improving education and reforming
state government.

TOPEKA The room was filled
with red and blue signs propped up
against walls and chairs. Defeat was
in the air at the Democratic watch
party in Topeka. Nonetheless, smiles
were bright and hopes were still high
for the future.
Kansas state senator Anthony
Hensley said he knew the results
would not be what he hoped, but
he said he was still believed the
Democratic Party in Kansas was alive
and well. He also said there is hope for
forming a bipartisan coalition in the
Kansas Legislature.
We have to work together cross-
ing to the other side of the aisle
and work with those Republicans,
Hensley said.
He said with bipartisan coopera-
tion, Democrats can show that they
can lead Kansas. He said the most
important things that Democrats can
do is to step forward and work for
Kansans.
After incumbent state senator Tom
Holland accepted his defeat in the
gubernatorial race, he joined his fam-
ily at the lectern. There, he announced
that he had called Sam Brownback to
congratulate him on his elected posi-
tion to lead, what he referred to as, the
state that we both love dearly.
He has earned our sincere con-
gratulations, Holland said.
Lisa Johnston, who lost her campaign
for a U.S. senate seat to Republican
Jerry Moran, she said Democrats cant
feel demoralized and they need to hold
every elected official accountable. She
said she also looks forward to the
future.
Im not going anywhere, Johnston
said.
Despite loses among Democratic
candidates, optimism still lingers.
Its never a bad year to be a
Democrat, Holland said.

Group teams up for
Veterans Day 5K
The Universitys roTc and
collegiate veterans Association
are teaming up to raise money for
the Wounded Warrior Project, a
nonproft organization that helps
injured soldiers make smooth
transitions back to their homes.
This is the second consecu-
tive year that the two groups are
hosting the Lawrence veterans
day 5k run. The race is scheduled
for nov. 13, and is set to begin in
front of the burge Union at 8:30
a.m. runners who register before
the day of the race at register@
active.com pay $15. runners who
register on the day of the race pay
an additional $5 late fee.
Aaron razak, a junior from
Hayes, served in the Air Force
from 2004 to 2009 and was
deployed twice. now, he is coor-
dinating the race to give the com-
munity a chance to give service
members encouragement.
you dont have to support the
war to support the people that
serve, razak said.
Game dog Gaurdian, an
organization that helps combat
dogfghting practices, is helping
to host the run. The kansas city
marching cobras, which helps
foster developmental skills of
underprivileged children in the
kansas city area, will attend the
race.
The Lawrence Police depart-
ment plans to block of some of
the roads near the University to
create a route for the runners,
though the specifc locations
havent yet been determined.
The frst 200 runners to sign up
will receive a T-shirt. Top fnishers
will win trophies or other small
prizes. every runner will receive
free water and fresh fruit, which
will be donated by the University
dining services.
The real prize, in razaks opin-
ion, is something diferent: the
chance to give back to those who
have served the country.
These guys have been through
a lot, and we want people to
know no one has forgotten about
them, razak said.

Queers and Allies
celebrate 40 years
Today marks the 40th anniver-
sary of Queers and Allies at the
University. The organization will
commemorate the event with a
formal celebration tonight from
8 to 10 p.m. in the kansas Union
and will feature free food and
speeches as well as memorabilia
acquired over the past 40 years.
It speaks to a certain amount
of stubbornness that weve
been around so long,said chloe
Alexander, media coordinator of
Queers and Allies. Its broadened
its reach not only outside but
inside as well.
That reach includes bringing
in political speakers such as the
creator of the rainbow fag and
other LGbT activists to share their
stories with area residents.
We like to bring diferent cul-
tural and educational experienc-
es to kU and Lawrence,said Joel
Layton, a senior from Lenexa.
When we have communication
we can improve the quality of life
for people who feel like theyre
alone.
A black and White dance party
will follow the event from 10
p.m. to 2 a.m. at Wildes chateau
24. Queers and Allies encourages
all students to attend.
In addition to educating indi-
viduals about the world of LGbT,
Queers and Allies also boasts
a strong history of political
involvement. one accomplish-
ment that the organization
prides itself on was its push back
in the 1990s for the University to
include sexual orientation in its
anti-discrimination policy.
kU actually passed their anti-
discrimination clause before
the city of Lawrence,Layton
said.
In the future, the organiza-
tion hopes to continue to
promote equality between
people of all sexual orienta-
tions and to provide LbGT stu-
dents with a safe place where
they can be themselves.
Its easy to be cynical,
Layton said. but this group
provides us with a forum that
we work to make our feelings
into positive actions.

Forty percent of registered voters
in Douglas County voted yesterday,
which was a smaller percentage than
during the 2006 election, according
to Douglas County officials.
Among students, the discrepancy
between the turnouts in 2006 and
this year was even more dramatic,
Jamie Stew, a Douglas County clerk
said.
We know the turnout among
students is a lot less than the previ-
ous gubernatorial election, Stew
said.
Stew contributed the low student
turnout to similarly weak campaigns
geared toward young people.
Jessica Brooks, a junior from
Pleasanton, said she noticed that
there wasnt much talk about the
election on campus this fall and that
she was disappointed by the lack of
political enthusiasm.
There is always a lot more hype
for the presidential election, Brooks
said. Its a flaw of the system.
Phillip Wrigley, a 2008 KU grad-
uate, helped operate polls at the
Burge Union yesterday. He said he
thought the biggest challenge that
student voters face was a lack of
knowledge, both about politics and
about the voting process.
Its a whole ballot, Wrigley
said. Probably most students have
only heard of four of the questions
on there.
However, Wrigley said that when
students werent familiar with an
issue, they depend on other factors
such as name recognition.
Thats a good thing because it
makes the process very accessible,
Wrigley said.
Although the turnout may have
been lower this year, there were
still students turning up at the
polls.
Aaron Dopf, a graduate student
from Lawrence, said that he knew
many people who voted.
Most of my friends already have
the sticker on, Dopf said.
Kelly Stroda contributed to this story.

Wes Gapp, a graduate student fromClinton, N.Y., and Laci Garhart, a graduate student fromHutchinson, Kan., fll out information before voting early Tuesday morning at Plymouth Congressional
Church. Plymouth Congressional Church, at Ninth andVermont streets, was one of more than 60 polling places in Lawrence.
Its a plan to move forward,
Brownback said. We campaigned
on the Road Map. We won on the
Road Map. We will govern on the
Road Map.
Brownback said he would work
early in his term to freeze the
state budget, review state business
regulations and release a strategic
economic development plan. He
said tough times still lay ahead.
Its a difficult time for many
Kansas families, he said. Jeff
and I promise you an energetic
administration with the govern-
ment serving the people, not the
other way around.
Brownback will officially replace
Democratic Gov. Mark Parkinson
on January 10, 2011.
Hundreds of Republican sup-
porters eagerly awaited the offi-
cial election results inside the
Sunflower Room at the Capitol
Plaza Hotel in Topeka. Seven mem-
bers of KU College Republicans,
who made the 30-minute drive
from Lawrence to attend the
watch party, said they were excit-
ed when the results were finally
announced.
Weve been waiting for a long
time, said Ashley Moretti, presi-
dent of KU College Republicans
and a junior from Wichita. Were
just happy to have a Republican
governor that can move away from
the Obama agenda.
Kansas is a naturally Republican
state, said Bill Lacy, director of the
Dole Institute of Politics. Couple
that then with the fact that theres
a huge Republican trend nation-
ally and Kansas doesnt really
become unique.
As many polls predicted,
Republicans reclaimed a majority
in the House of Representatives.
As of 2 a.m., they had picked up
58 seats in the election, 19 more
than the 39-seats threshold need-
ed to take back the House.
I just think that this is a state-
ment, said Katelyn Derus, a
sophomore from Elm Grove, Wis
and a member of the KU College
Republicans. Two years ago, no
one wouldve seen this happen.

No-controller technology
has potential to impress
Ian Vern Tan
bEYoND THE GRAVE
MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE
When Xbox 360s controller-
free Kinect add-on hits stores this
week it has the potential to redefine
gaming in ways even the Nintendo
Wii hasnt yet done. It could just as
easily fall flat on its face.
While Nintendos motion-
sensing Wii changed the way we
use controllers, Microsofts Kinect
completely removes the need to
hold a controller for its Xbox 360
games. But with that potential
comes some very big problems,
according to experts on digital
media and user interface.
Removing the physical con-
troller takes away a major piece of
context from the experience, said
Noah Wardrip-Fruin, an associ-
ate professor of Computer Science
at the University of California,
Santa Cruz, where he co-directs
the Expressive Intelligence Studio,
one of the worlds largest technical
research groups focused on games.
If I hand you something with but-
tons, you know youre supposed to
press the buttons. So the game has
to do more work to tell me what
to do, and give me feedback if Im
doing it wrong, if theres no physi-
cal controller.
But along with that extra bur-
den comes new power. Moving
our bodies in different ways con-
veys attitudes and emotions and
theres evidence it helps us feel
them as well. We could become
involved in games in a whole new
way.
Kinect uses a set of cameras and
microphones packed into a single
rectangular piece of plastic resting
over or under your TV to watch
and listen to the player. It then
translates that data into controls
for motion-based games like bowl-
ing, kickball and dancing.
The user interface is the most
important part of any experience,
said Kinect Creative Director Kudo
Tsunoda. It is the entire way you
are interacting with anything you
do. It is as important as your five
senses are to human beings inter-
acting with the world. I think this
is why people are so excited about
Kinect. It is a fundamentally new
way of interacting with your games
and entertainment. It is a new way
to play. And this gives consumers
and the makers of entertainment
an entirely new palette of toys to
play with.
But while Kinect promises to
make you the controller, that
doesnt necessarily mean that the
experience will be easier or more
immersive than using the tradi-
tional Xbox 360 controller, the Wii
remote or the PS3 Move.

Responses to the news of the week on Kansan.com
A
few years ago I was sitting
with my good friend, and
I said to him poignantly,
Im convinced that Apple could
be the future.
My interest in the subject was far
greater than his and the conversa-
tion moved on to other topics.
To a large extent, I still believe
what I said to be the case, and my
thoughts on that were reafrmed
by an article I read on CNN.
Tis article, by David Gold-
man titled Microsof is a dying
consumer brand, says exactly
what you would expect from the
headline that consumers are no
longer interested in Microsofs
products. It talks about how Micro-
sof has been late to the game in so
many technical areas that are cur-
rently revolutionizing how people
use technology phones, search
engines, browsers.
I can see this in my everyday
life. As an adamant Windows
fan-boy (only in opposition to
Mac), I still love and use Apples
iPhone, Googles search engine,
and Mozillas Firefox or Googles
Chrome Web browsers.
As for Apple potentially stepping
up to take Microsofs place as a
near-monopoly technology pro-
vider, every day at the University
of Kansas I see people using Mac
laptops and iPhones and iPads and
iPods. And maybe I see all of this
because Im on a college campus,
where people have more disposable
income to spend on such expensive
items.
However, comparing Apple
and Microsofs year-to-date stock
prices with each other, I can see a
trend. Apples stocks have increased
44.46 percent, compared to Micro-
sofs decrease of 14.63 percent.
So does this mean that consum-
ers are rejecting PCs in favor of
Macs? I certainly think they are.
Lets face it. For the average user,
Macs are far easier to use, much
more stable, less prone to viruses
and theyre sleek and cool looking.
Te PC vs Mac debate isnt Mi-
crosofs only problem, though. As
Goldman says in his article, Micro-
sof has simply not kept up with its
competition in the important areas
consumers are interested in.
Cawthon is managing editor
for Kansan.com and a senior
from Lenexa in journalism and
political science.
We, the Commission on the
Status of Women would like to
address the recent letter to the
editor concerning oral contra-
ceptives. We feel the response to
the original article was mislead-
ing and inaccurate.
First we would like to clarify
that oral contraceptives do not
cause abortion. Te term abor-
tifacient is used politically, not
medically. Oral contraceptives do
not cause abortion as defned by
the National Institute of Health,
but prevent pregnancy.
Te author also erroneously
leads the reader to believe that
contraceptives cause permanent
infertility. Contraceptives do not
cause infertility. Tey temporar-
ily suspend ovulation, and thus
prevent pregnancy, but this is
not a permanent state. When a
woman discontinues her usage,
she will be become fertile again.
Like any medication, birth
control afects every woman
diferently. For women who may
be at an increased risk for blood
clots and stroke, their medical
provider should advise them on
the best course of action.
Contraceptives have many
medical benefts, including
regulating the menstrual cycle,
treating acne, and relieving pain.
Contrary to the authors state-
ment that these symptoms are
signs of more serious health dis-
orders, this is not ofen the case,
and we believe it is irresponsible
of her to suggest that this is the
norm.
Te advent of oral contracep-
tion was not only a medical
advancement, but an important
social advancement for women.
Te availability of oral contracep-
tion in the United States created
an unprecedented expansion of
womens reproductive freedom,
allowing all women not only
sexual freedom but the ability to
plan their reproductive futures.
Te Commission on the Status
of Women believe that reproduc-
tive choice is a womans right,
and that the misrepresentation
of facts surrounding this issue
is more a detriment to womens
health than contraception will
ever be.
The KU Commission on the
Status of Women is a campus
organization that focuses on
gender discrimination. The
president is Liz Stuewe.

Letter was misleading the
pill does not cause abortions
As a woman who has been
on the Pill for over two years,
Patricia Hubers Nov. 1 letter
ofended me. I respect a push for
natural solutions to reproductive
problems, but many of her claims
are both incorrect and ofensive.
While the Pill poses risks for
women such as blood clots, heart
attacks, and strokes, these side
efects and risks are explicitly
stated in birth control ads and
again in directions and addition-
al information that come with
each pack. Much like surgery
and other medications, people
consent to these risks when they
begin taking them.
Tough recent studies have
indicated that nearly 30% believe
using the Pill causes infertility
there is no medical evidence
to support it. Te pills have
considerably fewer hormones in
them in contrast to their older
counterparts, making them safe
for women who wish to eventu-
ally conceive.
While much of Hubers
information is incorrect, my
problem lies mainly with her last
paragraph in which she says that
she should not have to pay for
women who take a medication
just so that they can engage in
voluntary behavior for which
they are not willing to accept the
consequences.
As a supporter of safe sexual
exploration and experimentation,
I fnd her tone insulting because
the point of most women taking
the Pill is to not face consequenc-
es at all. For this reason, Id rather
pay for a womans birth control
than for her children.
To put it into perspective, a
month of birth control pills costs
about 15 dollars afer insurance.
A month of Pampers diapers
would cost 84.
Finally, sexual conservatives
cannot have their cake and eat it
too: they oppose several forms of
contraception yet are unrealistic
about the risks we take without
them. Being on the Pill doesnt
make women deviant. It makes
us responsible for our sex lives,
and we deserve more credit than
were given.

Te release of nearly 400,000
confdential Iraq war documents on
Oct. 22 by the WikiLeaks website
revealed a startling image of the
secret history of the war in Iraq.
Te documents contain details of
events reported by the United States
military and provide evidence of
systematic torture and rape used as
weapons of warfare. Sixty percent
of the deaths registered in the
documents are civilian.
Te documents reveal the use of
indiscriminate and disproportionate
force used and condoned by the US
military. Tey also raise substantial
questions concerning war crimes.
Critics argue the release of this
sensitive information will jeopardize
US military operations and be used
by opposition forces to seek out
and kill Iraqi civilian informants
working with the US military.
Supporters of the whistleblower
website contend the documents
contain information the public
deserves to know. According to
the documents, as many as 15,000
Iraqi civilian deaths were previously
unaccounted for.
When President Obama was
elected, he promised to conduct his
administration with transparency.
Te amount of secrets revealed
within the documents WikiLeaks
released fies in the face of such
promises.
To be fair, the fles document
the Iraq war during a time Obama
was not president, but that doesnt
excuse him from failing to hold the
Bush administration accountable.
Secrets and lies are what paraded
the US into the war in Iraq. Te
WikiLeaks fles reveal that secrets
and lies have only prolonged that
war.
It is difcult to justify a war waged
under false pretenses. It is also tough
to support a war efort that tolerates
torture and civilian murder and
gives private contractors free reign.
Julian Assange is the spokesperson
and editor in chief for the WikiLeaks
website. As would be expected, he
is receiving a great deal of fak for
releasing the Iraq documents.
Shouldnt he be considered a
champion of truth and democracy?
Dont the people have a right to
know about the sort of devastation
and destruction that is happening in
their name, with their tax dollars?
Te WikiLeaks fles are important
for the historical record as primary
documentation of the many
mishandlings of a complicated
war. It appears the media is more
concerned with attacking Julian
Assange than with discussing the
issue of human rights the documents
raise.
In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg,
a former Rand Corporation
employee, released Department of
Defense documents that detailed
the United States political-military
involvement in Vietnam from 1945
to 1967. Te documents became
known as the Pentagon Papers and
indicated, among other things, that
the Johnson administration had
systematically lied to the public
and to Congress. Te publication of
the papers caused a national outcry
for government transparency and
accountability.
Today, the socio-political
landscape is much diferent. On
the other hand, some media
sources commend the website for
its courage and goodwill comment
of being unsurprised by the lack of
government honesty. Tere is no
palpable call to action or demand
for accountability. Instead the
politically discontent shrug their
shoulders and brush of the failure
of military responsibility.
WikiLeaks is trying to pull the
wool out of the eyes of a world that
prefers to live in the dark.
An Army whistleblower, Spc.
Bradley Manning, is currently
in custody. He is suspected for
leaking thousands of Iraq war
documents to WikiLeaks. Te
Obama administration has brought
as many prosecutions for leaks to
the American public as all previous
administrations combined. Granted,
it is a small number three but
it is still important to note.
Te administration is also
threatening to use the Espionage
Act to prevent further leaks. If that
happens, the American public will
know even less about the destruction
that is happening in their name.
For a democracy to function as
a true democracy, the governing
body must live up to the publics
expectation of transparency and
accountability. WikiLeaks is
providing information the United
States government was expected,
but failed to provide.

WikiLeaks document drop
reveals much in face of war
BY MICHAEL HOLTZ
mholtz@kansan.com

Editors note: An earlier version of
this story was first published on the
Midwest Democracy Projects web-
site on Oct. 29.
Kansas educators generally sup-
port Sam Brownbacks broad high-
er education goals. But some ques-
tion whether the newly elected
governor will be willing to spend
the money needed to meet those
goals.
Brownback won Tuesdays elec-
tion, becoming the states first
Republican governor in eight
years. He defeated Tom Holland,
the Democratic candidate, by 27
percentage points (62 percent to 35
percent.) During his campaign,
Brownback emphasized higher
educations role in the state econ-
omy. In his platform, Road Map
for Kansas, he outlined goals that
are in line with those previously
articulated by colleges and uni-
versities across the state.
These goals include achieving
National Cancer Institute desig-
nation at the University of Kansas
Cancer Center, supporting the
Kansas Polymer Research Center
at Pittsburg State University and
working with community and
technical colleges to better meet
workforce demands.
Holland also focused on the
economic contributions of higher
education in his campaign. He
called education one of the best
investments Kansas could make
to ensure economic development
and said he wanted to increase
spending for higher education.
Holland endorsed the Kansas
Commitment, a proposal by the
state Board of Regents to boost
state funding by $50.4 million.
It is impossible to do more
with less, said Gary Sherrer,
chairman of the Board of Regents.
We think its a relatively mod-
est proposal considering the total
amount were asking for is half of
what they cut from higher educa-
tion.
Holland backed the plan after
the student body presidents at the
six regents universities sent him a
letter encouraging him to do so.
Brownback received the same
letter and declined to endorse the
proposal. That decision has deep-
ened educators concerns about
what steps Brownback will take as
governor.
Budget Woes
The dismal state of Kansas
budget will no doubt complicate
Brownbacks ability to achieve his
higher education goals, which
include graduating more engineers
and improving the biosciences.
The recent recession proved to
be Kansas worst financial crisis
since the Great Depression, and a
three-year decline in state revenue
has exacerbated higher educations
financial woes.
The state has cut more than
$100 million from its higher edu-
cation budget during the last two
year and state funding per student
is at an all-time low.
Kansas largest financial hurdle
will be a $450 million gap in the
upcoming fiscal year left by deplet-
ed federal Recovery Act money.
The American Reinvestment
and Recovery Act provided tem-
porary relief for the state gener-
al fund, which funds roughly a
third of higher educations budget.
Though state universities and col-
leges still suffered significant fund-
ing cuts, those cuts would have
been much more severe had the
state not received federal support.
But Recovery Act money is soon
to run out.
To avoid further cuts to higher
education, Kansas lawmakers must
find a way to fill that gap, said
Duane Goossen, the states budget
director.
Some educators have voiced
support for raising taxes.
It seems to me that the state
may have to raise taxes, said
Joshua Rosenbloom, a professor of
economics at the University who
is an expert on state and local
economics. Without raising taxes
theres no other way to get around
this.
No NeW taxes
But Brownback said he opposes
tax increases. His solution is to sta-
bilize funding for higher education
by increasing the amount of state
tax revenue generated. He wants
to grow the economy by creating a
business environment that allows
Kansas businesses to expand and
that attracts new businesses to the
state. He says that means reducing
regulation and holding down taxes.
Stabilizing funding means
letting the regents know what
they can expect, said Sherriene
Jones-Sontag, a spokeswoman for
Brownbacks campaign.
In addition to his plan to increase
tax revenue, Brownback said he
would freeze the state general
fund. After freezing state spending,
Jones-Sontag said, Brownback will
evaluate how state funds are being
spent. Lawmakers could then shift
additional funding to areas he con-
siders the states primary responsi-
bilities: education, social services
and public safety.
In the good times, the state
was able to afford more programs
and provide more services, Jones-
Sontag said. Should the economy
not recover, there will be some dif-
ficult decisions made.
The states economic forecast
isnt entirely bleak. Goossen told
the annual Kansas Economic
Policy Conference last week that
Kansas had received slightly more
federal money than expected, and
state revenues in the past three
months were higher than expected.
He said the fate of higher edu-
cation depended on two things:
continued economic recovery and
the resolve of policymakers to keep
education budgets stable.
Brownback has called education
the primary function of the state.
Jones-Sontag said Brownback con-
sidered universities a tremendous
industry for the state and major
partners in getting Kansas on the
road to economic recovery.
However, some educators, such
as Rosenbloom, worry Brownback
will focus too much on higher
educations short-term goals as
governor.
The purpose of higher educa-
tion is not simply to train peo-
ple for jobs theyll do next year,
Rosenbloom said. Rather its to
prepare them for a world that will
look entirely different to them in
30 or 40 years.
Hes certainly not apathetical
to higher education, Rosenbloom
said. But I also think we run the
risk of becoming so focused on
economic development issues that
we lose sight of the broader pur-
pose of higher education.

Moran cruises to Senate seat over
frst-time Democratic candidate
BY KELLY MORGAN
kmorgan@kansan.com
More than 11,000 miles away
from his hometown of Maoming,
China, senior Xiaowu Li recalls
how difficult it was for him to
communicate with his peers when
he first arrived on campus.
At first it was hard to say what
I meant, Li said. My English has
improved a lot since I got here.
Li attributes much of his
improved speaking ability to con-
versation groups he attends that
are held by the Applied English
Center.
After class I can study English
by watching a movie or reading a
book, Li said. But I like to come
here and talk about topics. Its very
fun.
The groups, which are open to
non-native English speakers, meet
five days a week in the Hawks Nest
at the Kansas Union. The groups
are run by different discussion
leaders who talk to the students
about topics ranging in everything
from the definition of booty call
to political tensions around the
world.
We talked about Tiananmen
Square last time, said Arica
Maurer, a junior from Overland
Park who helps out with the
groups. It was really interesting
hearing the Chinese perspective
on it. Its so different.
In addition to helping inter-
national students practice their
English-speaking skills, the pro-
gram seeks to help acclimate its
participants to American culture.
A lot of students will come
here after seeing a movie and
have a really romanticized ver-
sion of what the U.S. should be,
said Chris Armstrong, a senior
from Lawrence. Theyll come
to Kansas expecting it to be like
New York, and thats obviously not
the case.
The program helps students
understand their surroundings
more by taking them on weekend
field trips to places like Worlds of
Fun or, more recently, a tour of
farms in areas around Lawrence.
The farm tour was very popu-
lar, said Rachel Crist, a program
administrator with AEC. A lot of
the students will go into the city
for the weekend and not really
get the opportunity to experience
what farm life is like.
As a whole, the program hopes to
help students reach their English-
speaking goals. International stu-
dents make up four percent of the
Universitys undergraduate enroll-
ment and 7.5 percent of the gradu-
ate enrollment.
I think students are just really
attracted to all that we are offer-
ing to them, Crist said. We had
one student who was able to jump
three levels in English just by com-
ing and practicing every day.

Library expansion
afrmed by voters
voters approved an $18 mil-
lion bond Tuesday that will fund
expansion of the Lawrence Public
Library.
The measure passed with ap-
proximately 54 percent of votes.
kathleen morgan, develop-
ment director for the Lawrence
Public Library Foundation, said
the campaign had benefted from
the signifcant eforts of experi-
enced volunteers. morgan said
the campaign put out more than
1,000 yard signs.
bruce Flanders, director of the
library, thanked supporters.
Theres a lot of people in Law-
rence who really care about the
community,Flanders said.
Flanders and morgan both said
work would begin sometime after
architects complete a fnal design,
which could take eight to nine
months.
construction on the library,
707 vermont st., would fnish in
late 2012 or early 2013, Flanders
estimated. The project is split into
phases, which will tackle parking
and building expansions sepa-
rately. The phases are expected to
allow the library to remain open
throughout construction.
The project expands the library
by 20,000 square feet, provides for
a new parking structure with more
than a hundred new spaces, adds
100 public access computers and
doubles the size of the childrens
room, among other changes.
The bond is expected to be paid
of during 20 years and will be
supplemented by an additional $1
million that the Library Founda-
tion hopes to raise privately.

ASSOCIATED PRESS
TOPEKA, Kan. Kansas voters
sent U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran to the
Senate with a huge victory mar-
gin Tuesday
night, some-
thing his fellow
Republ i cans
had expected in
a race against an
articulate but
little-known,
f i r s t - t i me
Democr at i c
candidate.
Morans win over Democrat Lisa
Johnston, a college administrator,
fit with the Republican nominees
status in the GOP-leaning state.
Kansas hasnt elected a Democrat to
the U.S. Senate since 1932.
Also, Moran easily tapped into
many voters discontent with
President Barack Obama and his
fellow Democrats over the economy
and the new federal health care law.
Im humbled, Moran told The
Associated Press by phone from
Hays, where he and his supporters
were celebrating his victory. With
success tonight comes great respon-
sibility as we try to turn this country
around.
Moran, 56, also has a folksy,
approachable image built with hun-
dreds of town hall meetings as a
congressman. Hes represented the
sprawling 1st Congressional District
of central and western Kansas since
1997.
Jerrys been around for a long
time, so you see what hes saying,
and his town halls, theyve been
around for a long time, Michelle
Hoferer, a 51-year-old Topeka res-
ident and project manager for a
company that fabricates limestone,
said after voting at a Topeka nurs-
ing home.
Moran will replace U.S. Sen.
Sam Brownback, a Republican who
opted to give up the seat and run
for governor.

If it can remain healthy, Kansas
frontcourt has the potential to be
one of the best in the conference,
if not the nation.
If injuries, like Jeff Witheys
lingering broken foot, pester
the Jayhawks though, depth in
the frontcourt could be a seri-
ous issue. Kansas has only four
legitimate big men Withey,
Thomas Robinson and Marcus
and Markieff Morris. To make
up for the shortage in size,
coach Bill Self gave 6-foot-6
Mario Little the nod as the
starting power forward in
Kansas 92-62 exhibition vic-
tory against Washburn on
Tuesday. The move worked
against the Ichabods, who
feature no player taller
than 6-foot-9, but could be
detrimental against some
of the oversized frontcourts in
the Big 12.
If somebody goes down, the
way our team is now, Self said,
youre looking at playing Mario
a lot inside and were too little, at
least against some teams.
All three Jayhawk big men
who played came up limping in
a two-possession span toward the
middle of the second half. The
problem was nothing more seri-
ous than cramps for all three,
but any more serious injuries
could have lasting effects for the
Jayhawks. Marcus isnt too con-
cerned, though.
Maybe a little
bit, Marcus said,
but we havent
had Jeff yet. But
well have Jeff in
the next couple
days so well be
fine.
The timetable
for Witheys
return has
already extended
past the expect-
ed four weeks. Self said he had
hoped Withey, who, at 7-feet, is
the teams tallest player by a few
inches, would be on the floor
Tuesday against Washburn, but
he hasnt even had the chance to
practice with the team yet. Self
said he hoped Withey would be
available to practice in
the next seven to 10 days.
Well have him hopefully start,
to where hes at least able to play
by the start of the season, Self
said.
Picking up the slack in the
meantime is Marcus, who was
as stellar as expected against the
undersized Ichabods. Morris,
the Jayhawks returning leading
scorer, finished with 28 points on
8-of-10 shooting from the field
in 22 minutes. He was a perfect
11-for-11 from the free-throw line
and pulled down seven rebounds
while leading the
team in steals
and assists with
three of each.
Markieff wasnt
as overpowering
as his twin, but
had a big night
of his own, fin-
ishing with 12
points and eight
rebounds in 22
minutes of play-
ing time. Both
twins are expected to get more
minutes as the season progresses,
and will likely see the offense
focus even more on their versa-
tility.
Marcus has to get touches
more often. Markieff has to get
touches more often, Self said.
Right now its kind of, whoevers
open shoots it, which is a good
way to play. But in big games
youve got to play through your
best guys.
Self said that, as much as inju-
ries could be a factor, he was
happy with the players he has
when they were available.
If you have the twins and
Thomas and Jeff and Rio, a lot of
people dont have five guys, Self
said. Were just not tall guys, but
I do think we have enough bodies
when were healthy.

Senior running back Angus
Quigley knows his teams depth
chart is thin.
Injuries on the offensive line and
defensive line and to the secondary
have forced players to take on new
positions and roles in coach Turner
Gills system.
Guys are banged up, but were
not going to make excuses, Quigley
said Tuesday.
Gill has been forced to put play-
ers who are usually starters onto the
special teams as well. Backup play-
ers usually fill special team roles.
Weve had to make some tough
decisions because theres not much
depth, so were playing a lot more
guys on special teams. So theres that
question for us: How much do they
play? How many reps? Gill said.
The players doing double duty
could be a factor in Kansas fatigue.
The spread offenses in the Big 12
also might play a role. Players dont
have as much time between plays
and defenses are forced to cover
sideline to sideline. A traditional
offense would run the ball between
the tackles more than a spread
offense.
But injuries
are certainly the
biggest thing
hampering the
Jayhawks depth.
Before the
season even
started, the
coaching staff
received dev-
astating blows
when linebacker
Huldon Tharp
and offensive linemen Jeff Spikes,
two starters from last season, suf-
fered season-ending injuries at
the beginning of training camp in
August. Running back Rell Lewis
also had his season ended after tear-
ing ligaments in his knee in early
September. Lewis was expected to
challenge for the No. 2 running
back spot behind Quigley.
Before the barrage of injuries
depleted much of the lines, Gills
recruiting efforts showed that he
noticed the lack of
offensive linemen he
inherited from Mark
Mangino. According
to Rivals.com, Gill
and his staff have
already locked up six
offensive linemen for
next year. In accor-
dance with NCAA
rules, coaches arent
allowed to comment
on recruits, but the
number of linemen
on their way to Lawrence next year
tells fans all they need to know: Gill
doesnt like having a thin depth
chart, and hes doing what he can to
change that in 2011.

COMMENTARY
Jayhawks
guards are
main focus
BY NICOlAs ROEslER
nroesler@kansan.com
KANSAS 92, WASHBURN 62
Jerry Wang/KANSAN
Junior forward Marcus Morris puts up a jump shot over Washburn forward DeAndre Washington during the second half. Morris led the team
with 28 points and seven rebounds in the 92-62 victory at Allen Fieldhouse Tuesday night.
T
he crowd erupted to a deaf-
ening decibel level for the
first time this season when
senior forward Mario Little passed
a breakaway alley-oop to sopho-
more guard Elijah Johnson.
Despite the ensuing techni-
cal foul called on Johnson for his
chin-up on the rim after the dunk,
the fans in Allen Fieldhouse got
their first taste of what the Kansas
guards should be able to do this
year.
The guards put on a show
Tuesday in the win against
Washburn, maybe not with their
shooting, but with their ability to
move a defense and score inside.
The starting lineup began the
game exactly the way many fans
wouldve expected it to. Senior
guard Tyrel Reed made the first
three-pointer of the game and
junior guard Tyshawn Taylor man-
aged the game well, scoring only
when he needed to. One surpris-
ing play came when senior guard
Brady Morningstar made a baseline
cut and whipped the ball around
on a reverse layup.
Taylor led the guards as a group
in points with 12. But the more
important statistic from the guards
was their assisting. Each of the
guards, including the ones com-
ing off the bench, had at least two
assists. The area that obviously
needs work is three-point shooting.
Those threes will fall, Taylor
said after the game. We have good
shooters.
Without the outside shot work-
ing right now, the guards found
other ways to score. Coach Bill Self
said that Taylors ability to get shots
inside would make him a key fac-
tor in the offense.
He shot the ball with confi-
dence, but the biggest thing is hes
just so athletic, Self said. He can
get to the paint whenever he wants
to.
Both Reed and Morningstar also
got the start, leaving Johnson on

TRIVIA OF THE DAY
Q: How many of those exhibi-

Bill self?
A: 22
Kansas Athletics
T
o many people across the nation,
the Big 12 football conference
is no longer at the top echelon
of NCAA powerhouse conferences. Some
of this can be placed with Nebraska and
Colorado departing its ranks. More so can
be blamed on Bob Stoops inability to win
a big game. And dont forget to add in the
fact that the SEC has won the last four BCS
championship games.
But the Big 12 still is relevant. And the
biggest place this is seen is in the NFL. Just
look at last years NFL draft. Five of the
first six players came from Big 12 schools,
including the first four players off the
board.
Look at this year. The leading offensive
and defensive rookie of the year candidates
both played in the Big 12. Sam Bradford,
out of Oklahoma, has led the St. Louis
Rams to more wins this season through
eight games than they had in the past two
years combined. And its more wins than
they had through the whole season three
years ago. He may not reach the total wins
2008 offensive rookie of the year Matt
Ryan had, but he has turned St. Louis back
into the conference competitor that it was
at the beginning of the millennium. And
Bradford is on pace to throw more TD
passes than Ryan did his rookie year.
On the defensive side, no one has had
a greater impact than Ndamukong Suh
of the Detroit Lions. Although his alma
mater, Nebraska, is about to leave the Big
12, he still played his whole career in the
Big 12 and should be considered a product
of it. Suh has recorded seven sacks and
even recorded his first defensive TD last
week. And the Lions two wins through
eight weeks have already matched last
years total. Perhaps even more important,
at least to the Lion fan I talk to, is the fact
that they are competitive in every game,
even if they end up losing.
And then there is Kansas own Aqib
Talib, who in his third season with Tampa
Bay, is currently second in the league
with four interceptions. Talib excelled last
Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals with
two picks, and took one back to the house
45 yards for the touchdown.
So yes, it might be a down year for the
Big 12. Texas is struggling and Bob Stoops,
per usual, is failing to come through in a
big night game, and all the ESPN pundits
are drumming into our brains how great
the SEC is. But the Big 12 is still a domi-
nant and relevant football conference, and
will continue to be even without Nebraska
and Colorado next season.

MIAMI LeBron James isnt
sure that he wants to be called a
point guard.
Theres no arguing he can play
like one.
Dwyane Wade led all scor-
ers with 26 points, James added
20 points and a game-high 12
assists the most ever by a Heat
forward, according to STATS
LLC and Miami rolled to its
fourth straight win, 129-97 over
the Minnesota Timberwolves on
Tuesday night.
Wade made 12 of 17 shots in
just 24 minutes for Miami, which
has outscored opponents by 22.8
points per game losing the season-
opener in Boston last week.
James Jones hit five 3-pointers
and scored 17 for the Heat, who
got 15 from Eddie House, 13 from
Chris Bosh and 11 from Udonis
Haslem.
Kevin Love led Minnesota with
20 points on 7-for-11 shooting.
It was Miamis highest-scoring
non-overtime game since beat-
ing Phoenix 135-129 on March 4,
2009. Minnesota gave up at least
130 points five times last season
alone, all in regulation.
Michael Beasleys return to
Miami was one that will stay with
him for a few days in the form
of a bruised hip.
The former Heat forward left
with about 8 minutes remaining
until halftime after scoring on a
drive, but tumbling awkwardly to
the floor and slamming his left
side on the hardwood. He scored
11 points, and X-rays were nega-
tive.
Sebastian Telfair and Wes
Johnson each scored 13 for
Minnesota, which stayed with the
Heat for much of the first half.
Miamis lead was only 50-44 when
Wade got free for a dunk with 5
minutes left until halftime, kick-
starting what became a 44-22 run
over the next 16 minutes.
Nikola Pekovic scored 12 for
Minnesota.
Miami shot 58 percent, and to
think James wasnt even doing
much of the scoring.
He turned down shots in the
first half to make extra passes,
and his 12 assists were distributed
among eight different Heat play-
ers. By the time James got his
second basket of the night a
layup with 9:12 to play in the third
quarter the Heat were already
leading by a comfortable 79-58
margin.
James hit 6 of 8 shots in the
third quarter, scoring 14 of his
points, then took the fourth quar-
ter off as Miamis reserves com-
pleted the runaway.
The Heat led by as many as 34
in the final minutes.

ST. PAUL, Minn. Niklas
Backstrom stopped 36 shots,
Andrew Brunette scored
the games only goal and the
Minnesota Wild shut out the
powerful San Jose Sharks 1-0 on
Tuesday night.
The Sharks held an 18-4 shots
advantage midway through the
second period, but found them-
selves trailing after Brunette
scored a 5-on-3 goal with 7 min-
utes left in the period.
Harassed by Wild defensemen
Brent Burns and Nick Schultz,
and denied by Backstrom all
night, the Sharks dangerous
top line of Joe Thornton, Dany
Heatley and Patrick Marleau was
shut down. Backstrom recorded
his first shutout since March 3,
2010, at Calgary.
The Wild killed five power
plays, highlighted by a key stop
with 7 minutes remaining in
the third. The Sharks entered as
the top power-play team in the
league at 31.6 percent.
The win snapped a five-
game losing streak for the Wild
against the Sharks and snapped
Backstrom out of a funk against
San Jose.
Before the shutout, Backstrom
was 2-7-3 with a 3.19 goals-
against average vs. the Sharks.
The Fin made several key saves
on Sharks power plays, including
denying Joe Pavelski in the third
on a 5-on-4 advantage.
After starting slow, the Sharks
had won four of the previous
five and scored 20 goals in the
four wins.
The Wild had just six goals in
their last four games, but man-
aged to do enough to earn anoth-
er important win against a quali-
ty opponent. The Wild also had a
big victory over the Washington
Capitals last Thursday.
Brunette scored by taking a
pass in the crease from Martin
Havlat and beating goalie Antero
Niittymaki. Brunette had fanned
with an open net seconds earlier,
and looked relieved after making
the most of his second chance.
The power-play goal was the
Wilds second in their last 20
chances.
Niittymaki made his third
straight start and stopped 15
shots.

MINNEAPOLIS In the after-
math of Randy Moss sudden exit
from Minnesota, his tirade at a
caterer during a team lunch last
week has gained national atten-
tion.
Moss screamed at the co-
owner of Tinuccis Restaurant
and Catering in Woodbury and
Newport in the locker room
after practice because he appar-
ently didnt like the way the buffet
looked.
(Moss) came
walking up,
Gus Tinucci
said. There
were a couple
of guys that
were in line.
I was carving
some meat for
a guy and all of
a sudden I heard all this screaming
and I was like, Are you kidding
me? I knew who it was immedi-
ately. I looked up and there he was.
(Moss said), I wouldnt feed this
(expletive) to my (expletive) dog.
I was in shock. I couldnt believe
it. It was quiet in there.
The Vikings cater lunch for their
players in the locker room every
Friday after practice. Tinucci said
his familys restaurant has catered
for the Vikings a handful of times
in recent years in part because
they became friends with former
center Matt Birk.
Tinucci said his buffet includ-
ed ribs, chicken, a round of beef
carving station,
pasta, vegetables
and dessert.
It looked
good, like we
always do, he
said. I dont
know if he
was starving
for attention
or what. But
nobody laughed,
I can guarantee you that.
Tinucci said he heard one player
tell Moss to shut up. He wasnt
sure which player. A veteran
player sent the Minneapolis Star
Tribune a text message Tuesday
that described Moss outburst as
bad. Tinucci said two Vikings
employees approached him after-
ward and apologized.
We just went about our busi-
ness, he said. I had more compli-
ments. The guys that were there
and heard it and saw it, I think
they were very appreciative of us
being there. I wasnt going to say
anything because we appreciate
being there. We want to come
back there. What am I going to
do, call him out? Go, Hey, if you
dont like it, get the hell out or
whatever? Im in
their house.
It was not the
first time Moss
verbally abused
someone asso-
ciated with the
Vikings. In 2001,
he screamed at
a group of cor-
porate sponsors
on a team bus in
Philadelphia for occupying a seat
that he wanted. The team fined
him $15,000.
Tinucci seemed a little surprised
by the national attention that Moss
latest meltdown garnered.
He just slammed us, Tinucci
said. It wasnt us personally
because he doesnt know us from
Adam.
Moss tirade at team lunch caterer
could have sealed his sudden exit

Kansas will face the No.
5 Nebraska Cornhuskers in
Lawrence on Wednesday, in a
rematch with the Big 12s top team
after the Jayhakws swept Texas
Tech on Saturday.
In the two teams last meeting,
the Cornhuskers extended their
all-time winning streak against the
Jayhawks to 85 matches in a four-
setter at Lincoln.
Nebraska (20-2, 12-1 Big 12)
and Kansas (14-10, 5-8 Big 12)
are both 1-1 for the week. The
Cornhuskers dropped a four-set-
ter at Texas before sweeping Iowa
State, and the Jayhawks dropped a
match at Missouri on Wednesday
before Saturdays win against
Tech.
Kansas reached a season-high
.423 hitting percentage Saturday,
with senior outside hitters Karina
Garlington and Jenna Kaiser hit-
ting for better than .600. Kaiser
scored 16 kills
in the match
without record-
ing a single
attack error.
We need
to carry this
momentum on
and have a great
practice and
challenge our-
selves more and
be even more competitive, Kaiser
said. Because we need to step it
up for Nebraska.
The Cornhuskers have a 29-0
record against the Jayhawks in
Lawrence and lead the nation in
blocking with 3.12 blocks per set.
They also rank second in kills per
set with a 15.04 average.
Nebraska junior Brooke Delano
ranks No. 2 overall in the nation.
A .439 hitting percentage and her
1.47 blocks per set put her in the
top 10.
Delano in the middle is one
of the best blockers in the Big 12,
so thats something were going to
have to focus on or avoid if
we can, Kaiser said.
Only three teams have hit bet-
ter than a .200 average against the
Cornhuskers this season: Illinois,
Florida and Texas. Nebraska leads
the Big 12 in limiting opponent
hitting to .151.
But the Cornhuskers blocking
has been declining recently. After
racking up double digit blocks
in nine of their first 14 matches,
Nebraska has reached double fig-
ures only twice in its last eight
matches.
On Saturday, Kansas had
unusual offensive success, but,
then again, Texas Tech has the
worst record in the Big 12 and
Nebraska has the best. Coach
Ray Bechard said the Jayhawks
would face a tougher challenge
Wednesday.
We know defensively, coming
into Wednesday, thats a whole
different set of circumstances
with Nebraska, Bechard said.
But if we can continue to side out
and hit at a high efficiency, well
give ourselves
a chance.
K a n s a s
f r e s h m a n
middle block-
er Caroline
Jarmoc leads
the team with
a .275 hitting
p e r c e n t a g e
and .91 blocks
per set and
has stepped that up recently to
average .391 and one block per
set over the last three contests.
Garlington continues to lead the
Jayhawks in producing kills with
an average of 3.55 per set and
freshman Brianne Riley is lead-
ing the defense with 3.65 digs
per set.
We have a very good opportu-
nity coming; its at home, Jarmoc
said. We were able to take a set
off of them at their home, last
time, so if everyone is at the top of
their game, we have a really good
chance to beat them.

Ofen overlooked in the in-
creasingly tough East, the Hawks
are showing early signs they may
be able to stay up with the Heat,
Celtics, Magic and Bulls this sea-
son. With a group that has grown
together in recent years, Atlanta
could be a dark horse in a crowded
feld.
Afer leading by 17 in the frst
half, the Hawks let the Cavs back in
it and only led 89-84 with 5:35 lef
on a dunk by Horford, who signed
a fve-year, $60 million contract ex-
tension on Monday.
Cleveland had several chances
to get closer, but with the Hawks
paying extra attention to Hickson
inside, the Cavs had to rely on their
outside game and couldnt hit a big
shot when they needed one. Tey
went 1 for 8 on 3-pointers in the
fourth quarter.
Hicksons layup got the Cavs
within 91-87 with 3:49 lef, but
Marvin Williams made two free
throws and Horford, with no one to
pass to at the top of the key, buried
a 20-footer to put the Hawks ahead
by eight.
Anthony Parker added 10 points
and Anderson Varejao had 12 re-
bounds for Cleveland, which was
without injured forward Antawn
Jamsion. He sat out with a sore lef
knee that has been bothering him
for several weeks.
Down by 13 afer one, the Cavs
limited the Hawks to 19 points in
the second quarter. Unfortunately,
Cleveland gave up 40 in the frst
quarter when Atlanta, shooting
better than 70 percent for much of
the period, threatened to blow the
Cavs out.
Afer Sacramento was able to
easily penetrate the heart of Cleve-
lands defense for easy baskets in a
comeback win on Saturday, Cavs
coach Byron Scott put an empha-
sis on his team cutting of driv-
ing lanes to the Hawks, one of the
leagues most athletic squads.
Cleveland succeeded in do-
ing that early on. Trouble was, the
Hawks hardly missed a shot. Atlan-
ta went 15 of 21 (71 percent) from
the feld in the frst 12 minutes.

assOCIaTED PREss
AUBURN HILLS, Mich.
Rajon Rondo had nine
points and 17 assists to lead
the Boston Celtics to a 109-86
rout of the Detroit Pistons on
Tuesday night.
Kevin Garnett scored 22
points and Paul Pierce added
21 for Boston, which won eas-
ily despite Shaquille ONeals
absence because of a bruised
knee. The Celtics hardly missed
him against the undersized
Pistons, who are off to their
first 0-4 start since November
1999.
Charlie Villanueva scored
17 points for Detroit, which
played without Richard
Hamilton, who was out with a
sore right foot.
Rondo had a triple-double
with 24 assists Friday night
against New York.
His big night Tuesday gave
him 67 assists through Bostons
first four games.
ONeal, who didnt make
the trip, missed two straight
practices since bruising his
right knee against the Knicks.
Jermaine ONeal started and
scored 12 points, and rookie
Semih Erden made his debut.
The Turkish 7-footer entered
in the first quarter and quickly
blocked two shots. He then
scored his first NBA points
on a breakaway dunk in the
second that led to a Detroit
timeout and put Boston ahead
39-28.
The Pistons were competi-
tive in their first three games
but fell behind 16-5 early
in this one. Rondo made a
3-pointer to end the first half,
giving Boston a 57-44 lead,
and the Celtics poured it on in
the third quarter. At one point,
Pierce was so open in the left
corner he paused, as if daring
DaJuan Summers to come out
and guard him. Pierce then
made a 3-pointer to put the
Celtics up 86-66 and went back
down the court shaking his
head.
Pierce needs 23 points to
reach 20,000 for his career and
will have a chance at that mile-
stone when the Celtics host
Milwaukee on Wednesday
night.
Detroit lost forward Jonas
Jerebko in the preseason to
a torn Achilles tendon, and
6-foot-11, 205-pound Austin
Daye has been playing power
forward. Daye scored 16 points,
one of five Pistons in double
figures, but Detroits defense
couldnt contain Rondo. The
Boston point guard helped his
team shoot 52 percent from the
field, and the game was never
really in doubt in the fourth
quarter.

Junior forward Marcus Morris
This will be the frst of many games to
remember for Marcus Morris, who proved why
the hype surrounding him this ofseason has
been so overwhelming. Morris was remarkably
efcient in 22 minutes, fnishing with 28 points
on 8-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds.
He also went a perfect 11-of-11 from the free
throw line.
Of course, Im looking at it biasedly, but
Im thinking, gahLet him play.

Sophomore guard Elijah Johnson
Johnson had two of everything last night:
two points, two assists, two rebounds two
fouls, two turnovers You get the idea. In
20 minutes he was unspectacular, hitting just
1-of-6 shots and missing all four attempts from
behind the three point line. Hell need to be
much more efective to take playing time away
from seniors brady Morningstar (six points,
two assists) and Tyrel reed (nine points, four
rebounds, three assists).
Morris
Notes
Conner Teahan didnt dress for Tuesdays game. bill Self is con-
sidering redshirting him, and doesnt want to lose that possibil-
ity quite yet.
Marcus and Markief Morris were the only Jayhawks to shoot 50
percent or better from behind the three-point line.
bill Self said the timetable for a ruling on Josh Selbys eligibility
is still unclear, but he had the feeling he would know when a
ruling would come down soon.
Self said he hopes to have Jef Withey back in seven to 10 days,
but that he already expected to have him back on the foor.
kansas 92, washburn 62
BY COREY THIBODEAUX
cthibodeaux@kansan.com
twitter.com/c_thibodeaux
Junior center Markieff Morris
has turned himself into quite the
outside shooter.
Morris spotted up at the top of
the key about five minutes into
the game, and his improved stroke
was pure.
He was 2-for-2 on threes in the
Jayhawks 92-62 victory against
Washburn, and part of that is a
good sign for the team.
Oh man, junior forward
Marcus Morris said. I feel like
if he hits them like that, teams
will be in trouble because Keef is
shooting it with confidence now.
Unfortunately for the Jayhawks,
no one else is. As a team, the only
blemish on an otherwise complete
game was the poor 4-for-19 per-
formance from beyond the arc.
Marcus hit one of them and senior
guard Tyrel Reed hit the other.
It looked good from the begin-
ning when Reed made the first
bucket of the season with a three.
But that would be the last for the
guards.
The backcourt was a combined
1-for-10, and they were open
looks, while the Morris twins
had three makes. Junior guard
Tyshawn Taylor said no one had
a shot that coach Bill Self could be
upset with, but it happens.
We have nights like that when
guys are off, Taylor said.
But looking at the roster, some-
one has to step up or there could
be a trend.
Last season, Kansas made 7.3
three pointers per game, shoot-
ing 40.3 percent. The numbers
wouldnt have been that high with-
out Sherron Collins and Xavier
Henry, who had 70 and 69 three-
point makes, respectively.
Reed, who made 44 threes last
year, was the only other Jayhawk
last season with more than 20
makes.
Self knows he needs to find
another source of outside shoot-
ing, aside from his post players.
That wont fly over time, Self
said.
But thats just one weakness,
Taylor said. The Jayhawks showed
they can do about everything else
right in the easy victory.
Those threes should come in
time, but Taylor said those other
aspects of the game should be
enough to get by.
I dont think we have to focus
on making shots or not, he said.
We have to be able to do other
things.
Though the jump shots werent
falling, the free throws were. The
Jayhawks racked up 32 free throws
on 35 attempts. Thats 91 percent.
How the team was able to pull
that off is still a mystery.
Weve practiced them abso-
lutely zero so far, Self said. I
guess our fans think whatever
were doing practicing free throws
is working.

Kansas head coach Bill Self talks with junior guardTyshawnTaylor during a break in the action. Taylor was one of three Jayhawks to score in double
fgures with 12 points and did not commit any turnovers.
ROESLER (continued from 1B)
Poor 3-point shooting is lone blemish in win
the bench to watch the start of the
game. As his crowd pleasing alley-
oop shows, he can bring energy when
the team needs it.
Although the team is lacking the
prototype point guard that Josh
Selby could offer them right now, the
guard group, as a whole, provided a
glimpse at a team that will be able to
rotate the ball without problem. That
includes getting the ball to the for-
wards down low.
Self pointed out at the end of the
game that he actually thinks the
Morris twins are two of the best pass-
ers on the team. There seems to be
the element of a guard player in every
person wearing a Kansas jersey.
Obviously the talent is there, even
with freshman Josh Selbys ineligibil-
ity. Self said that if Selby could play
now, he would be a starter.
Shooting 21 percent from the
three-point line is not inspiring, but
everything else is. With a potential
rotation of six guards, the backcourt
should prove hard to stop for any
opponent. Even with all of those
combinations of players, Taylor
thinks they can all work well together.
The chemistry thats developing
between all of them is yet to be seen,
but the Kansas guards should make
some noise this season.

Excited fans have high expectations
BY NICOLAS ROESLER
nroesler@kansan.com
Excited fans filled in as the doors
of Allen Fieldhouse opened, letting
the heat rush out of the building like
a sigh of relief.
This is the relief the Athletics
Department and many fans were
looking for after a disappointing
season of football.
For Ted Fuhrken, a 1980 gradu-
ate, the beginning of the basketball
season is a welcome break from
watching the Kansas football team,
which has only won two games
this year.
Its been a disaster, Fuhrken
said.
Despite his loss of hope for the
football team this year, he thinks the
basketball team is sitting in a good
spot for the season. He said that
with Kansas State ranked higher
than the Jayhawks in the polls this
year, Bill Self and the team will
have less pressure and will be able
to stay under the radar and glide to
at least another conference cham-
pionship.
Other fans are simply eager to
start a new basketball season, and
could care less about football.
Im really excited to see all the
new players, said Kate Kennedy, a
junior from Lawrence.
Kennedy said she thinks this
years team will be much stronger
than last years, even without seeing
what freshman Josh Selby could do
against Washburn.
Many freshmen were especially
excited about the game, as this
was their frst time sitting in the
student section. This was the case
for Hannah Crandall, a freshman
from Kansas City, Kansas. She said
she is excited to see what the team
will do this year, but shes really here
for another reason.
Its such a good atmosphere,
Crandall said.
Despite Te Phogs renowned
intimidation factor for visiting
teams, some University alumni
were not as engulfed in Te Phog as
others. Sports Illustrated lists Allen
Fieldhouse as the No. 10 best college
sports venue in the country, with
No. 1 being the Rose Bowl.
Chris Crary, a 2008 graduate,
never made it to a game while attend-
ing the University. He finally made
it to Tuesday nights season opener,
apparently drawn by the reputation
of the opening video. Crary was
introduced to the experience by his
friend Jacob Kennedy, a senior from
Lawrence. He interjected quickly
while Crary was responding to a
question about Kansas football.
Fortunately he has not heard of
whats going on with the football
team, Jacob said.
He said he was looking forward to
the prospects of a basketball season
that will definitely be more exciting
than the football season, but also
last years basketball season.
I have high, high hopes. Thats
for sure, Jacob said.

Portland ends road
trip with 90-76 win
mILWaUkee Wes matthews
scored 16 of his 18 points in the
frst half to help the Portland Trail
Blazers end their four-game road
trip with a 90-76 victory over
the milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday
night.

rcus aldridge 14, dante cun-

which was playing its third game
in four nights.
matthews was the frst of the
bench and had seven points in
the frst and then added nine
more in the second quarter as he
either slashed to the basket or
hit from long range to shred the
Bucks defense.
Leading 47-45 at the half,
Portland capitalized on the
Bucks poor shooting and porous
defense to outscore milwaukee
26-17 and take a 73-62 lead into
the fnal quarter. It was the frst

Wall outshines Turner
in Wizards close win
ASSOCIAtEd PRESS
WASHINGTON John Wall
had 29 points, 13 assists, nine
steals and eight turnovers in
his home debut, outshining fel-
low rookie Evan Turner as the
Washington Wizards beat the
Philadelphia 76ers 116-115 in
overtime Tuesday night in the
first matchup of the top two picks
in this years draft.
No. 1 choice Walls eventful
game gave the Wizards their first
win of the season. Cartier Martin
caught Walls inbounds pass and
hit a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds
remaining in regulation to send
the game into overtime.
No. 2 pick Turner, who came
off the bench and wasnt a factor
until the second half, scored all
of his nine points in the fourth
quarter and finished with six
rebounds for the 76ers, who are
0-4 for the first time since 2001-
02.
Lou Williams led the 76ers
with 30 points, one shy of his
career-high. He scored 20 points
in the fourth quarter and went
6-for-6 from the free throw line
in the final 17 seconds of regula-
tion as the 76ers lead fluctuated
between one and three points
until Martin hit the 3-pointer
that electrified the near-sellout.
